Marble vs Quartz Countertops: Why is Quartz Better
Marble countertops are beautiful but they are not for everybody. If you have enough time on your hands to seal it regularly and put daily efforts into the care and maintenance of marble, then you are good to go. Although, you should still be very careful with hot pots and pans that can damage marble, as well as with groceries like lemon, wine and other that can easily stain marble. Quartz is much, much easier to maintain.
Material and Appearance
Marble is one of the most beautiful natural stones that adds elegance and luxurious look to any room. Marble countertops are made from natural marble stone that has been quarried from the earth. Then it was sliced, water blasted, buffed, and, finally, polished into the slabs that you can see and choose in the showrooms.
Quartz countertops offer consistency and uniform color and pattern. With quartz, what you choose is what you will get. It is able to mimic marble or granite to perfection. This is a man-made, engineered product that consists of ground natural quartz in combination with resins, polymers, and pigments. The ratio of these components can go from 93 to 97 percent quartz and 3 to 7 percent resins, polymers, and pigments.
Marble is a natural stone and cannot be chosen from a sample. Each slab is 100% unique and there are never two the same slabs.

Maintenance and Care
Marble is one of the most delicate natural stones. It is porous and soft, etched and stained easily, and shows watermarks. Marble requires regular sealing and resealing, as well as high daily maintenance. Wine, lemon, tomato juice, vinegar and anything acidic will damage it.
Quartz is a non-porous and stain resistant artificial stone that never needs sealing. Warm water and soap are enough to keep it look its best.
Marble is much softer than other natural stones, let alone than quartz. This means that marble is very likely to scratch when you slide hot pots and pans around. A thermal shock from high temperatures is also possible.
Quartz countertops are highly heat resistant. It depends on the manufacturer but most quartz countertops can bear temperatures of up to 150 degrees or more.
